Kabump!

We're just over a month out now and I'm starting to get things together. Hopefully. Very Happy This is a gentle reminder for people to bring as much of their own gear as possible. Any and all feedback will be helpful. The team will be on hand to answer any questions and help you get the most from your kit.

EDIT:

Kabump! We're less than 2 weeks out now. We're finalising a bunch of stuff and generally running around on fire. We'll have a bunch of our in-house tools to hand (press punches etc) plus a soldering station for things.

We'd appreciate it if people could bring their own gear - whether BSUK or not - so we can get together and have a proper development day. We won't just be looking at shinies but games, organisation skills and general stuff that comes out when you put a bunch of Nerfers under the same roof. Very Happy

EDIT #2:

Final prep is under way now. If anyone has a Khaos magazine they can bring along with them, I'd be grateful. For, er, reasons...

I can confirm that I will be at this so long as public transport doesn't fuck me over.
I'm looking forward to seeing you lot there

EDIT : Or not ticket times shifted since I last checked and actually it's nasty and unhelpful

Looking forward to this, hopefully I can sneak over at some point without the kids finding out!..


...'but mum why is dad packing Nerf stuff in the car..!'

Guess most of us will be there around lunch for pizza, also looking forward to looking at all the new nifty stuff, RS rewire and breaking/shooting stuff!

So yea the whole thing really!

Is there an agenda/ plan for the day's main events?

Zenif you just managed to scare the crap out of me. Tech day is the day After BB which allows you to be lazy and leave it in the kit in the car! Smile

No plan, just rock up and say hello. Pizza will be sometime after noon or whenever Spud gets hungry which could be whenever. Smile

Head Office has given me the green light!

I'll leaving from Bexley early Sunday morning and picking up Nerf shack in Bracknell. There's two spare seats in the car if anybody wants one and is willing to split petrol.

Just printed the labels for the registration packs. Need to remember to pack the hammer and safety goggles for destruction testing.

Oh god, it's actually happening!

EDIT: Side note: Nerfers are a carnivorous lot... Very Happy

On the train, should be there about 11:40. Note to self: Avoid stares by getting a hold all. Your blaster is too bootilicious.

I know it was a 'give and take' thing but I still would like to thank BSUK for putting this on. It was great meeting you all and interesting in seeing all your wares and just chatting. Apologies to the guys trying to film vids whilst I continuously spooled up my blaster in the background. Mike n co let me know if you find my nametag.. I lost my goodie bag somewhere and that was cool.

Thanks again!

Shooting is all part of the fun!
I not only got a goodie bag and had a great day talking to you all but I also got a "Worker Stafan Tattoo."



Tattooist was 30 ft away and that's today, a while after the tattoo was applied!

Was it just me or was OldNoob extra talkative yesterday?

So yea, it was well worth the drive over. Good to see some of the super secret stuff BSUK has waiting in the wings and using my car to test your products was a hoot. There was less of a 'mod party' element than I was expecting but it was great to see some old faces and meet some new ones.

Here's to the next one!

OldNoob is always like that. It's fine. Thanks to everyone who came along, it was nice to run an event again even if we did opt for 'easy' mode. Smile I've got a notebook jammed full of stuff to work on and I'm letting my brain churn through some of.

UKNW, please tell me you can get that video onto Youtube at some point? Very Happy
